There are always things to do here at UFP. Here are some current needs. Check to see if any is calling your name, and if so, shoot a quick email to the office expressing your interest. We’ll be sure to connect you to the right team/person.
Welcoming Washrooms Chair (and team members)
The Welcoming Washrooms Committee is looking for a Committee Chair to begin in September to support the team with the educational, participatory events needed to ensure accessible, inclusive all-gender washroom options at UFP. If you’re interested in learning more about this project and role than please contact Casey or talk to them during cookie and juice hour post-Sunday service.
Our Sunday Services are led by trained volunteers who work with Rev. Julie to create and lead. Our team of co-leaders regularly meet together for support and sharing, and take turns being ‘up front’ on Sundays. Your voice and presence would be great addition! Meredith Hill can give you more information!
Dismantling White Privilege Team
Rev. Julie is committed to leading those members of our community (who identify as white) in working to dismantle colonialist culture. This involves becoming aware of how we unconsciously perpetuate systems of oppression, while cultivating practices of deepening awareness and humility. It is important that we offer several ways for people to engage in this process, so a team of leaders/planners/facilitators is necessary. We’d love to have you on this team!
Home-baked goodies are always welcome for Sunday mornings. If you get an urge to bake, we’d love to sample your delicious treats; just bring them with you anytime! (Remember, no gelatin or marshmallows.)
Tend our Pollinator Garden
We have a Pollinator Garden, planted with the support of the Peterborough Pollinators, on the south side of the building. It needs some regular loving care, which could include the installation of a rain barrel at the top of the hill.
Sunday Helping Hands
Each Sunday morning experience requires the support of volunteers in a variety of roles. It’s easy to sign up on right on our website to be an usher/greeter, to prepare coffee or do kitchen clean-up. Talk to Kim Black if you’d like more information.
And Tracy Galvin supports our sound team which also uses this sign-up system.
RE Leader / Helper
Be a Religious Exploration leader or occasional helper. Our programming for children and youth is a really important part of who we are, and you can help make it possible. You can be a part of this wonderful program one day a year, or a day every month, or help every week! Talk to our RE staff.
Calling on your Creativity!
New banners for the sanctuary and the streets! Updated stationary and cards! Better and more consistent branding! Does this interest you?
Or, might you love to make a beautiful bulletin board? Or artwork for our theme packets or bulletin covers? Or make our snack table more beautiful on Sundays? There are always ways to use your creativity here!
Be a member of our sound team. On a Sunday, once every 5-6 weeks, you’ll make sure that the microphones are set-up, working and are at the right volume. Training is provided! See more information under “Sunday Helping Hands” above.
Sermon Podcast Manager
Be the person who edits sermon recordings for posting on our webpage. This involves regularly uploading digital recordings…then editing and organizing for posting.
We have a great collection of books and need someone to occasionally do a bit of tidying and organization on the shelves. You might also highlight a few great reads…by putting something in The Flame or by putting out a display on some Sundays.
